It"s a record wheat production of 34.4 million tonnes – up on last year"s record and double that of 2018-19 drought-stricken 2018-19 and 2019-20 wheat crops – is also projected.
"The national record is driven by expected all-time high production in Western Australia and the second highest on record in New South Wales.
